[The rest of these notes come from the original X11R5 implementation
 in 1991, and have been updated slightly for the xfs 1.1.0 modular release,
 but are otherwise a bit stale.]

Installation instructions for fontserver

24
1 - If you don't want to use the default config file location,
25
26
run configure with the --with-default-config-file=path option to
point to the correct place.
27

28
An example config file is in ./config
29

30
2 - modify the config file so the 'catalogue'
31
parameter points to a set of valid font directories.
32
33

At this point the test programs should work.  Start the font server
34
35
36
37
(xfs &) and try some tests.  Most of the clients take
a command line switch of where to find the server, and
FSlib understands the environment variable FONTSERVER.
The format is the same as Xlib, (ie, hostname:server_number).

The fontserver has been tested with PCF, Speedo, SNF and BDF formats.

Tested environments:

the fontserver and clients have been built & tested on SPARC running
4.x and a DECstation 3100 running V4.0.  it should work ok on any 32
bit UNIX w/ BSD sockets.
